Airline reviews

Pros: "Great crew, excellent staff at the airport. Planes were nice and comfortable. Food was ok. They have an excellent price to quality ratio; you can often get great prices on some of the more popular destinations and the service is 5 stars."
Cons: "Some alcoholic drinks"

Pros: "The service is really good. The only downside is that you have to be in Doha. But it’s always nice to leave Doha."
Cons: "The push button entertainment system doesn’t work well. You have to keep pressing buttons to make a movie play. And by pressing buttons, I mean, you have to hit the screen and wake up the person whose head is on the other side of the headrest."

Pros: "crew was so kind and lovely with our daughter"
Cons: "food was fairly rough from Doha and the wine options in economy on all flights were terrible"

Cons: "Extraordinarily care taken On board. Very impressed with Qutar Airways. Excellent"

Pros: "Crew was very helpful for everything"

Pros: "The crew was very cheerful and helpful even though I was puking my guts out on a long flight with a lot of turbulence"
Cons: "It was an insanely long and pukey flight. The airsick bags have this seal that you have to tear off before you can open it which my son discovered a little too late."

Pros: "Great service & very comfortable lie flat business class seat for this red eye flight."

Pros: "Uneventful flight. Baby in next row only cried intermittently"
Cons: "Please place crying babies in a sound-proof compartment"

Pros: "Friendly Crew, good entertainment possibilites."
Cons: "Everything has a plastic holding purse."

Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The food was horrible."

Pros: "seats were awesome, so as the food and the occasional snacks were delightful"
Cons: "My entertainment screen wasn't working, but since I got a window seat I didn't complain. Long time for a 12 h flight without video or something to occupy myself, but at least the USB port was working..."

Pros: "It is so far a cut above the American carriers. There’s no way to compare them, because Qatar Airways is so far superior. The seats are far more comfortable and larger, the amount of legroom is far superior, you have much more personal space, and the craft is cleaner. Flight Attendants are fantastic! They provide excellent personal care, and are there for everything. They are supremely polite and courteous, and bring things in mediately. Very often anticipating your needs. This is what flying used to be like on United and American. But those people have completely forgotten what service is. Qatar is a 5 star airline. United and American, to my view, are 2 star at best."

Pros: "Modern plane and great crew."

Pros: "On business class, so service was extraordinary"

Pros: "The crew were nice and cautious"

Pros: "Good service!! Good food!! Great staff!!"

Pros: "Ended up having spare seats beside me. Planes were new and in great condition. Staff were very good."

Cons: "carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways (Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes, so the carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on Qatar on purpose or by engineering error, and I will not fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class passengers. Entertainment computer (Android based system) ran slow and out of memory at times. Seats were not comfortable for 12hrs flight. My butt was starting to hurt. I did not have this issues on Emirates flights."

Pros: "Courteous and friendly staff, on the plane and at the airports. Gave advice and directions when asked. Asked about time for food serving and said anytime you want something, come to the galley."
Cons: "A chorus of crying infants..."

Pros: "everything went smoothly, no delays, boarding was easy and quick"

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."

Pros: "Good, drinks, service and entertainment system."

Pros: "Boarding from Doha and service in doha."
Cons: "ASSISTANCE IN DELHI..my parents did not even get wheel chair after long tiring journey..they were keep trying for help and did not get any help..I am asking is this the airline duty or not to give assistance who is in need.even did not get the porter to carry the heavy luggage.is anyone responsible for that? what is the use of this nonsense servey?"

Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"

Cons: "The boarding was not handled properly. There was a 40 mins delay, keeping in mind it was never mentioned on the screens. When seeking guidance from crew members about the flight's boarding different answers were given at different time. First it was no delay, just the plane getting closer to the gate, later followed by a 10 mins wait that later became over 30 mins. Once we finally made it on the flight, when requesting a beverage the only option given is water or orange juice and if you have any dietary restrictions (even when providing said information to the airline) you will remain without food on the shorter flights."

Pros: "Their efficient technique of boarding in Zones made it quick and effortless. The staff is very friendly and helpful! The entertainment was good and the flights where always on time.The food was excellent flying from Venice! Overall a great experience with a world class airway."

Pros: "In my way to Dubai, I asked the gentleman not to put me in the middle, when I get in found myself in a middle row middle seat. Food choices chicken, steak, and stuffed zucchini all are nasty. Also, I was told that business class luggage comes out first that wasn't true on both leg of the trip. Also, I wasn't told that I have a lounge to hang out until the boarding time. In my way back it was same exact food menu service is mediocre at best very demanding flight attendants. Also the luggage came out towards the end . I told my friend I travelled with that this would be my last time to use Emirates airline"

On the gate I was told that my boarding pass is not valid as some other emirates agent marked me as no show for the missed connection, effectively cancelling my ticket. Some how got the new boarding pass 30 mins before departure. Obviously Emirates could not load my checked in luggage since there was only 30 mins left and preferred not to tell me also. Missed the luggage and had to spend 1 hour waiting near the belt and another hour filling up the complaint. Horrible flight."

Cons: "Flight to Istanbul was fine. The flight back was a terrible experience! During our connecting flight in Athens our boarding passes wouldn't print at the self service computers and there was no one to help us so we had to go back out to the front desk. The airline representative was extremely rude. There was 5 employees standing around the computer with NO customers and when we asked if this was Turkish Airlines and if they could help, the woman (manager) responded "this WAS Turkish Airlines" as if they were done helping customers for the day (it was 9AM and our flight was leaving in 45 min). We explained that we couldn't print our passes and she ROLLED her eyes as if it was an inconvenience to help us. THEN on our flight from Istanbul to Chicago, a passenger died an hour into the flight and they placed the body on the seats behind us for over 10 hours! Nobody even told us what happened! We didn't know if they died from natural causes or if it was something else! They didn't offer to seat us somewhere else or even inform us they were placing the body there. We were completely shocked and uncomfortable the whole flight home. We couldn't eat or sleep. We're completely disgusted and scarred from this overall experience."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The issue of excess baggage. Would appreciate to buy on line before my flight so that I know how much to carry and also that I am covered before leaving home. Payment at the airport may be too costly as well as unreasonable. It's like a penalty for having excess luggage. This is the reason I prefer flying with EMIRATES because they afford me to but pay fir excess luggage before my departure. Planning ahead is key"

Pros: "Like most American Airlines, Turkish Airlines provides no-frills service. On the other hand, having a pleasant and respectful flight crew can make a tremendous difference in the passengers experience. We were lucky enough to have a flight attendant named Gulhan Who smiled the entire flight. She was professional, courteous, and service oriented. Most of the flight crew showed similar professionalism. Turkish Airlines had for better service then any of the American or European airlines I have encountered during the last 10 years."

For long international flights, the airline still provides disposable slippers, toothbrush, and eye cover for every passenger 3. Crew members on board were friendly and service oriented"
Cons: "1. Poor support for passengers with international transfers. We took Turkish airline to fly from Rome to San Francisco with an overnight stopover in Istanbul. The airline promised overnight stay and transportation. When we got into Istanbul airport after 11:00pm as scheduled, there was no support from the airline. Different airline staff provided different answers. Very confusing. The on-site transfer desk support was unfriendly and not helpful. 2. Tight seat configurations for international flights. For our 13-hour flights, the seats were not comfortable."

Pros: "I am a frequent Turkish Airways travel and have always enjoyed my experiences with Turkish Airways."
Cons: "My seat was not functioning so I was not able to recline to more comfortably sleep during the flight. The flight was an overnight flight from NYC-JFK to Istanbul, i.e. so a VERY long flight! A flight attendent was not able to get the seat to recline either and said she'd come back to help with another seat or some other solution, but never returned. This made the flight less comfortable and a bit disappointing as my typically experience with Turkish Airways is excellent!!"

Pros: "The best flight ever!"

Pros: "Impressive design of the cabin, especially the extra large WC. Wonderful staff. Food was exceptional and plentiful."

Pros: "Flight Service, meals on board, entertainment system, comfort, kits. Service on board is great."
Cons: "Service at Ataturk Airport, this place needs to be improved, also booking system that will sell tickets with more than 24 hour layover without mentioning on the site, tricks passengers to idea that they are leaving on the same day. I got stuck in Istanbul for 24 hours, just because tickets didn't mentioned date of second departure."

Cons: "Connection very very tight and stressful Had to run to connecting flight and just made it by <1 minute"

Cons: "Boarding was a zoo as the system was down -not very organized either. There was one crew member who was extremely rude and even as people boarded by her section did not greet people. Skipped a few rows with drinks and then told them there was no time to bring even a glass of water. Fortunately another crew member (who we also asked as they went by) brought water to those she had skipped who wanted it. My TV monitor was not working. Aging planes - need a thorough cleaning.

Pros: "Everything. The flight was great and the staff were awesome. Thanks Lufthansa."
Cons: "Nothing, all was great."

Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Waiting for long time in a crowded bus to NORAD the plane then rushing out of the bus to Nita the plane with no lines and having to wait for the crowds outside the lane in a freezing temperature. Furthermore, there was no entertainment on the plane and the food was horrible. Add to this the very cramped seat space and no carry ons in the plane (unless you speak German)"

Pros: "The service was fast. The employees were kind."

Pros: "Service is outstanding in economy and puts US airlines to shame. Lufthansa is the best way to fly to Europe."
Cons: "Clearing passport control in Frankfurt is very slow. The setup is not very good for a world class airport. You need to give yourself at least an hour."

Pros: "Tans it time to Amman is too long and that is the most distressing"

Cons: "Dear sir or Madam, I’m writing this complaint as I feel so mistreated and so disrespected, I had a ticket# 2208688265549 with a confirmation# WP6DHB travelling from Tulsa , OK, USA to Cairo, Egypt. Everything was great as expected and recommended by my uncle who travels with your respected company at least twice a month till I got to Frankfort airport to take flight# 0582 from Frankfort to Cairo. I was stopped while heading to the plan by the flight manager as he called himself later, and told me that I have to only have one item on the plan, I already had one carry on and my hand bag that has my laptop and the charger, I told him that I was told by Lufthansa customer service the night before traveling to confirm the luggage weight and size that I’m allowed one carry on plus personal item like a hand bag or lap top bag and they have to meet specific dimensions. I even offered to call the customer service number for verification, he replied ‘’I don’t care, I’m the flight manager and you will do what I say’’. His words were really hurting, I showed him the tag on my carry on that I got from the previous flight it said (approved carry on) don’t remember exactly what it said, he reached to my carry on and tare that tag, I didn’t think that was appropriate even if the tag had no value he doesn’t have any right to touch my luggage without my approval, then he tried to grab my ticket from my hand saying I will get you off the flight, I got really upset and told him don’t touch my belongs. There was a moment of silence because I think I raised my voice (my apology to him and to the company for that), I realized that the conversation is not going any where so I decided to file a complaint (not because he wanted to me to only have one item but mostly because of his attitude) so I asked him for his employment ID number he walked away without saying anything, waited till he walked close enough that I can ask him again this time he refused to give me his employment ID number, asked him for his name he said it so softly, I asked him to spell because I didn’t hear it right he said it so softly he refused, then I had to look for his badge and the name on the badge I believe his first name started with P and last name started with T. I waited a few days till I got to talk to my uncle and told him what happened as he is the one who recommended Lufthansa and he has a lot of experience with your services he said that they might need to do that because the flight was complete and they want to offer luggage place for everybody, but what I surprising is there was many empty seats on the plan my seat was 032C and the 2 seats beside me (032A and 032B) were empty also there was a lot of carry-ons room everywhere. So I don’t know why he was this way with me, I’m really disappointed specially that is only my first flight with Lufthansa since 2015, that flight manager made me have an extremely rough experience. one more thing when I told him I’m going to compla"

Pros: "Comfortalble trip"
Cons: "Boarding delay"

Cons: "Not well organized and food is unhealthy"

Pros: "The most comfortable trip"

Pros: "Attendants"
Cons: "Thisnisnthe locationwhere my luggage got stuck"

Pros: "The crew did a great job. It was a little slow to board and disembark but again I'm pretty sure it was the people."
Cons: "One of the crew members at the airport said I had to check my bag but a woman with a bigger bag went on the flight with out having to check her bag. The people flying to Cairo are horrible. Rude, disgusting, disorganized. Took forever to board and disembark the aircraft. If I didn't have to fly to Cairo for work I would never take this flight again in my life. Not much you can do as an airliner though, maybe just warn the tourists about the flight."

Cons: "Being asked, when other passengers were around me, how much money I cary with me. This is a dangerous thing. I don't know whom I travel with, and I felt at risk knowing that other people know how much cash I have with me. Plus, the money were counted on the passageway to the plane, with people walking by. I strongly believe that you should change the method you ask and check passengers for cash. I heard other details that I shouldn't hear from another women who was also checked. What I ask is PRIVACY."

Pros: "Nothing. It was awful. Worst flight in years."
Cons: "Airport,business lounge, boarding process-they didn't know what was going on, business class seats we're nobody size seats, awful food-was supposed to be a hot breakfast but it was dinner instead, no entertainment, no tv screens, said they had wifi but they didn't. Nothing good about the flight. Crew was more concerned about keeping their curtain pulled than anything else."

Cons: "No screens at all and the boarding was messy"

Cons: "No any form of inflight entertainment Uncomfortable chairs Food was below average I had to ask 3 times for a glass of water"

Pros: "The flight from DTW to FRA was made that much better by a particular flight attendant who actually remembered it was my first time flying. She checked with me personally as we were disembarking in FRA to see how my flight was. I unfortunately did not catch her name, but she was the highlight of the flight. If I fly again, I will definitely fly Lufthansa for flight crew like her. I skipped the evening meal as I was feeling unwell, but I had the breakfast. The fresh fruit, and especially the watermelon was delicious. There just wasn't enough of it."
Cons: "The seat cushion was rather stiff and made the 8-hour-long flight just a tad uncomfortable."

Pros: "The ease and non-confusion of the boarding process"
Cons: "There wasn't much entertainment options on this flight"

Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Cons: "Seating"

Pros: "The food was good and the crew members were very friendly and caring."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by about 2 hours but we still made it to Germany with enough time to catch the Moscow flight and check out the duty free stores."

Cons: "Poor cabin crew behavior. Gate agent kind of reprimanded passengers to carry only one bag to cabin almost shouting at people in Frankfurt."

Pros: "Boarding process, food and entertainment were excellent."
Cons: "Seats seemed a little small, even for economy."

Cons: "It was raining and cold and we were told to get out of the bus to board the plane, even though there were still many people trying to board the plane. Got wet in the rain on a cold morning before boarding."

Pros: "Great flight service, lots of good food, and plenty of fluids."
